Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-- This revised edition (Watts, 1986) differs very little from the original, which surveyed the use of illegal substances and abuse of legal prescription drugs among amateur and professional athletes. Like the first volume, the book also provides brief historical and medical information about the drugs. The chapter structure and most of the text are the same. The changes consist largely of updating the well-known and sometimes tragic examples of athletes since 1986 who have been affected by the widespread abuse of drugs in sports (such as Len Bias, Ben Johnson, and Dwight Gooden). There is also a discussion of EPO, a recently discovered blood booster used to increase oxygen levels in the blood and now banned in college competitions. Source notes for the added material are appended, as is a short updated bibliography. (However, there are no source notes for the bulk of the text.) Libraries owning the previous edition can pass this by; libraries without it will find this book helpful for assignments. --Jack Forman, Mesa College Lib . , San Diego
